Has anybody used/heard about/read about them?
I had one, an IO26, and it went back after a week as, bizarrely, it over-heated and started to malfunction. I returned it to DV and they said they've already have several returned with the same problem.
Hi g18llo, Im (unfortunately) glad to see your entry here, because I've had one for a week and it has me stressed out! (And the fact my own thread on this is getting no replies!) How did the malfunctioning on your unit manifest itself? My problem is clipping-like distortion which occurs frequently and at any volume level, regardless of the meter readings. This can then only be solved by calling up the Control Panel (or "Alesis 1394 Settings" as it appears on my i-Mac) and either temporarily disabling the device or reselecting the "machine type" (is this the same as Buffer Mode, anyone?).
One manifestation of this which may be telling to the electronically minded is when I am listening to i-Tunes: while one track may play fine, the gap between songs seems to trigger the distortion. And I have seen some threads here stating that only an idiot would use the same computer for DAW work AND listening to music on...heh heh! Sure while I'm pulling all that money out of my ass, I'll magic up enough for a third (turd?) mac just for checking my e-mails!!...Plus a bit more to put the world to rights....
